nbc bay area news beginnings with breaking news. thank you for joining us, on this friday. >> i want to tell you about some breaking news now, police are at the scene of a shooting, this is what we know so far. the shooting taking place not far from facebook's headquarters, at the intersection of ivy drive, near bellhaven elementary school. at this point we don't know the number of people involved in the shooting, if there are fatallies, and what the
11:01 pm
circumstances are, but we have more on the scene and we'll give you information as we get it. and it is a development that is angering everybody. it appears that they blamed everybody but themselves, they blamed a sexual abuse victim for being careless. >> reporter: probably a poor choice of words on their part, based on the allegations in the complaint. >> reporter: legal analyst and attorney is not working on the sexual abuse case against the miraga school district, but is giving his legal insight into the stunning denial, involving qunan, who is suing the school district, and three former administrators claiming they knew about the abuse in the mid-'90s, one of the teachers is in prison for abusing qunan, they filed a legal response, saying plaintiff was careless and negligent, and was
11:02 pm
responsible for the acts. >> from a legal standpoint, i'm not sure that the minor can -- can consent or be careless and negligent, because she lacks the ability to consent. >> reporter: the school is under watch, in part, they say we empathize with her and didn't intend to cause her further distress, however, this is a significant case that could have serious consequences for our school district. she is demanding several million in damages. >> part of this legal fight is a pr campaign, and i think we can certainly say that the school district lost this round. >> reporter: qunan says she wants the miraga school district to take responsibility. >> i have suffered. i don't really think there is a dollar that can fix what i have been through. but for me it is about telling the truth and holding the people who let it happen, holding them
11:03 pm
accountable. >> we should add, the miraga schools are covered by liability insurance, the insurance company is paying for their attorneys and would cover any potential monetary awards. qunan says she is looking for somebody to take responsibility. and a former principal facing six months in jail for failing to report the sexual abuse of a student, lyn vijayendran interviewed the teacher, craig chandler, but did not go to the police. chandler was arrested and charged with committing lewd acts on five children. the video did him in, the san francisco police say the public led them to a man who violently attacked a muni agent last month. the surveillance video shows the attack and the man police say they were looking for. they say he attacked the muni
11:04 pm
man after he told him bikes were not allowed in the area. devin riley was booked into jail on battery charges. and she is the other woman in the trial, ivory madison is speaking out and trying to sway the vote in san francisco. >> i live in district five, next door to a convicted batterer, who is also our sheriff, because christina lage thinks it is okay to abuse your wife and still run a major law enforcement agency. >> madison is now campaigning against alage, who replaced miriami, she wants the cell phone video explaining how her husband grabbed her arm during a
11:05 pm
fight on new year's eve. one group for accountability produced the ad, we have reached out for comment but have not received word back. and decision 2012, with four days to go in the crucial election, remains, the economy. the final jobs report before election day is out. employers added 171,000 jobs in october, numbers better than expected with an unemployment rate of 7.9%, both sides are spinning the numbers to their advantage. president obama saying it means the country is heading in the right direction. challenger mitt romney says it is 9 million jobs short of what the president promised. and analysts say they're both right. >> there is no question we've come out of the spring lull where the economy nearly stalled out. and we have apushed further fro that, that is the good news, the bad news is it is still low.
11:06 pm

11:07 pm
>> i feel violated. that somebody out there has my information. >> reporter: this lady knew there was a postal problem, for ten days last month she didn't get a single piece of mail. still, she was stunned to see what this sting uncovered. >> whoever has taken the mail, i mean, i hope you go to jail and get caught. drop it off at the police station, can we have our mail back. >> it is actually quite rewarding for us to get the cooperation from the community that we've gotten, we have videos we're following up on, three detectives on the case, and hopefully we'll have a resolution to it very shortly. >> reporter: the fairfield police call the actions of neighbors amazing, residents want the bad guys to know they won't stand for crime on their beat, they're determined to crack the case. >> cameras and eyes and ears are rolling. so all hands on deck. >> reporter: jodie hernandez, nbc bay area news. and it is four days now

11:12 pm
wynn has more. >> that is right, when their neighbor's tree fell on their home, they immediately contacted the insurance company. but seven months later they're still out of a home and questioning the process. they believe they're containing costs on one side and limiting liability on the other. >> reporter: coming home brings back memories linda and chris kenton would rather forget. >> my wife and son were actually sitting at the dinner table when the roof and tree came within the house, it literally came three feet within killing them. >> there was just a very, very loud sound. and i saw a flash of green, you know, we were sitting in the dining room. and i knew immediately, oh, my gosh, it is the tree. >> reporter: the march rainstorm brought it down into the family's roof, and tore up the home. at last check it was valued
11:13 pm
$600,000, grateful nobody was hurt, they focused on re-able, but having the same insurance company as the neighbor's kept them in limbo for several months. >> they're state farm, we're state farm, you would think everybody would sit at the table and negotiate a settlement. that is not happening, what is happening is state farm is not. >> we're going to get to the facts of the investigation. >> reporter: should it be easier to resolve than if they had different insurance companies? >> each claim will be handled on their merits. >> reporter: this spokesperson says he can't tell us what the average time for resolution is. >> if there is a case where somebody is not at fault, then the insurance company is not going to pay. >> would it be my fault if i didn't maintain my tree, and it
11:14 pm
fell into the neighbor's home, would it be my fault. >> again, i'm not a representative. >> but you work for a company that handles liability. >> but i'm not a claim representative. >> reporter: and neither can the california department of insurance. >> if you have a concern then you need to file that complaint. >> reporter: the agency has a hot line and website to lodge complaints, last month, the website received many complaints about homeowner's insurance, 33 involved state farm. >> we'll talk to both parties and get to the bottom of it. we'll find a resolution, sometimes it may go into the favor of the family, sometimes not. >> reporter: the spokesperson doesn't know how many claims are like this family's, we asked to review them, but the state department said no, they resolve the claims in 60 days, usually. >> we encourage people to really know their homeowner's policies. lot of times, these things, we
11:15 pm
buy them and put them in a drawer. >> reporter: but the family knows their policy, they're just not getting what they paid for. >> my fundamental expectations when i buy insurance is that they're going to go to bat for me. i mean, that is how they market their product, and what has happened the last six months that we have been out of our house is that the company has not gone to bat for us, they try to contain close. >> like a good neighbor, state farm is there, that is your slogan, they don't feel you're a good neighbor. >> we always move the claims as quickly as possible, but there is a process in place, we have to maintain the integrity of that process. >> fundamentally, the bottom line for us, they need to make our home safe. >> they failed you? >> so far they failed us. >> well, resolution may be on the way for the kentones, they say after we contacted state farm, they received a check for $195,000 for initial settlement. the negotiations with the
